Breathtaking Pictures of Churches Around the World That You Must See Jesus Christ was born in a manger or a shed where animals were kept. When he grew up, he led a very humble life. He did not wear any jewelry nor did he frequent the pompous palaces of kings and princes. He preached everywhere in every town and village around Galilee, Cana, Jericho and Capernaum.
